Temporary Hair Removal
- Sugaring -
Body sugaring is an ancient form of temporary hair removal. Similar to waxing, body sugar paste is applied to the skin, then quickly removed, taking the hairs away with one swift motion.
However, body sugaring has less in common with waxing than you'd think. Beyond removing hairs from the root, en masse, waxing and sugaring are actually very different >>
1. The body sugaring technique.
When waxing legs and bodies, you remove the hair against the natural direction of growth causing undue levels of pain. With the sugaring method, you only remove the hair in the natural direction of the hair growth. This causes less tugging of the skin and lessens the chance of follicle distortion under the skin.
2. Body sugaring products do not adhere to live skin cells.
This is one of the major differences between sugaring and waxing legs and other more sensitive areas. Wax products are made of resins which adhere to skin cells. Because wax sticks to any surface it is applied to, pulling it away causes unwarranted pain. Sugaring products never adhere to live skin cells on bodies, faces, or legs. Therefore, when it is removed, it only gently exfoliates dead skin cells, leaving behind silky smooth skin.
3. Body sugaring paste is room temperature.
No risk of burning sensitive skin areas! Waxing the legs or other areas on a client using hot wax runs the risk of burning sensitive skin. There’s just no way around that.
4. You do not have to 'grow grow grow' your hair.
The sugaring technique requires only 1/16″ (2mm) or less of hair growth for body treatments, eliminating the long wait between studio visits (not to mention client frustration). Plus, every treatment makes your hair easier to extract.
5. The healthy difference between natural sugar paste vs. the chemicals used in waxing.
Sugaring paste is 100% all natural. It’s even edible and delicious. Our sugar pastes are very safe and skin friendly. Most products used for waxing legs and full bodies are made from petroleum based resins and chemicals making them prone to contamination or cross contamination.
6. Body Sugaring paste is naturally antibacterial.
Our certified practitioners never re-use sugar paste and always wear gloves. Sugar paste is always discarded after each client is treated. Another great benefit is that bacteria does not breed in high concentrates of sugar eliminating the possibility of cross contamination.
7. Limited waste is produced in comparison to waxing.
We begin with one ball of sugaring paste, and end with the same ball of sugaring paste. No unnecessary sticks or strips to throw away.
8. Sugar paste is 100% water soluble.
If it happens to get on your clothes - no sweat - it rinses out with water.
